Situation and amenities


Cherry Cottage is set on high ground, and from its elevated site, enjoys delightful panoramic views over open countryside and a wide stretch of the Taw Estuary. Ashford is located between Barnstaple and the large village of Braunton, with its excellent range of facilities. A little further afield are the resorts and safe, sandy, surfing beaches at Croyde, Putsborough, Saunton Sands and Woolacombe. For golfers, the local club at Saunton has two magnificent championship links courses. Barnstaple, the principal town of North Devon houses the area's main commercial, leisure and shopping venues, and is about 3 miles. At Barnstaple, access is gained to the North Devon Link Road (A361), and this provides a fast route to the M5 Motorway (Junction 27), about 45 minutes by car. Also close to Junction 27 is Tiverton Parkway Mainline Railway Station, providing access to London Paddington in just over two hours. Exeter, the cathedral city, with its international airport is about 40 miles. Nearby, there is access to the Tarka Trail, providing many miles of footpaths for cycling, dog walking and rambling. Exmoor is less than half an hour by car.

Description


Cherry Cottage presents colourwash rendered elevations beneath a tiled roof, and is understood to be of period origin. Most principal rooms enjoy the fabulous panoramic view across the Taw Estuary, although the views are even better from the garden. Internally, the property has been modernised, and now combines original period features with modern refinements. The property is situated at the heart of the conservation area of the village of Ashford, literally adjoining the church grounds, in timeless surroundings, yet convenient for Barnstaple and so many amenities.

Outside


To the front, the property is initially approached over a tarmac drive, which provides ample parking and turning space, and leads onto the detached double garage with power and light connected. There is then an extended brick paviour driveway leading to the front of the house, which doubles up as a terrace. There is a gravelled area to one side with ample room for a table and ideal for al-fresco dining. The drive is bounded by picket fencing. A pathway then leads under a rustic archway, clad in roses and honeysuckle with separate steps up to a sweeping lawn, where, at one end, nearest to the house, is a rotary washing line area. In the middle, a paved terrace, and at the far end, a further terrace and decking area to enjoy the best of the views, where there is also a timber shed and steps lead back down to the garage and drive area. The garden is bounded by mature hedging, which provides a good deal of seclusion and privacy, and the oil tank is sited to the rear of the house.
